Our reservation was right as they opened. We more or less had the whole restaurant to ourselves. Definitely no concerns with social distancing. The menu may have been slightly smaller than normal but we were still pleasantly surprised. We can't wait to return when things are back to normal!

Teddy & The Bully Bar did not open and did not notify us via open table that they did not plan on opening.

The corn bread is worth the trip. A slightly larger entree menu with a few more options would be really great.

The shrimp scampi pizza paired with a glass of Rosé was amazing.

Always a good stop for a business/client lunch meeting. After clearing our table, our waiter went AWOL for a really long time when we needed to get our check, but otherwise, no complaints!

Our server Randall was AMAZING. The entire time he made sure that we had any food needed and drinks.
I will visit this restaurant again and again.

Nice Sunday brunch spot with both breakfast staples and generous a la carte selections for variety. Can get noisy and has a great DJ for a modern vibe.

Service was awful. We had to flag down our server for everything, she never once voluntarily checked on us. My friend’s steak came out cold. The mushroom risotto was lacking any type of flavor. And the noise level was ridiculous, we had to basically yell at each other to be heard. None of us will be going back.

The food was outstanding. We had the brussel sprouts and cornbread to start. I’m not a huge brussel sprout fan but these were amazing and I could have just sat there eating them all night. I really appreciated all of vegetarian options too. The mushroom risotto was divine. So nice to be able to order that and very thoughtful that it didn’t have chicken stock in it. The drinks were a generous pour too.
The service was good, we didn’t feel ignored or smothered. We sat at a booth which was a little awkward. The seat was set too far away from the table. Overall, a great experience and I highly recommend it. Can’t wait to go back!

I thoroughly enjoyed dinner and the bourbon cocktails. The dessert fell flat, however, and we tried three of the options. The pumpkin ice cream is the real star!

The food was really good and the drinks were delicious. Our experience was negatively impacted by our server, who was dismissive and spent more time chatting up a larger table while we waited for him to be available. We sat with our card on the table so long that another server came over to ask us if we needed assistance.
I am hoping to return and have a different experience with another sever.

Great experience! Went here for a “post valentines day brunch” and it was great food, great atmosphere and the music selection was versatile. Not too loud where you couldn’t have a conversation. And its good bang for your buck with the al la carte menu and additional waffle and omlet stations. Would definitely recommend.

We arrived and were seated right away. Our waiters were friendly. They served us bread and our water glasses were always full. The restaurant is clean and comfortable.The Waite staff changed a couple of times during our dining experience so we weren’t sure who to order from at one point but we were able to order quickly in spite of the changes. The drinks were also described accurately and were good. My food was a little cold, but very flavorful and filling. I had the short rib dish, highly recommended. Overall a good dining experience.

They had a set Valentine’s Day menu and just a few things from the regular menu to pick from. Felt as if they didn’t make the food to order but had pre-made dishes sitting under lamps since people could only pick from the preset menu.

Most of the food came out either lukewarm or cold.
